Amends the Children's Health Insurance Program Act and the
Illinois Public Aid Code. Provides that in making a determination of
a child's income eligibility for the children's health insurance
program or Medicaid, the Department of Public Aid must accept an
applicant's attestation that a child satisfies the household income
requirement but may later verify the child's income eligibility.
Provides that the Department may not determine that a child's
household income is unverifiable for the sole reason that an applicant
is unable to provide pay stubs or other statements of income.
Requires the Department to encourage and facilitate the enrollment of
children in the children's health insurance program and Medicaid with
their enrollment in the National School Lunch Program and similar
programs so that, to the extent possible, a family does not have to
submit information needed to determine eligibility for these programs
more than once. Repeals the provision repealing the Children's
Health Insurance Program Act on July 1, 2002. Effective immediately.
